Another UStamp with Dawn Project

I still have a few projects that I'm catching up on from the UStamp with Dawn Summer session. This is my version of Makeesha Byl the Australian Dream Team Member's Double Boxed Gift Basket. I filled mine with Stampin' Up goodies, but this would make a great gift basket for a baby or wedding shower.

The basket which is made from two 12 x 12 sheets of cardstock is comprised of two separate boxes that are joined in the middle by a divider that also acts as a support. The divider is made from two A4 pieces of cardstock covered with designer paper. To further stabilize the basket a 6 x 10 piece of cardboard is cut and adhered to the base of the basket. I was really amazed at how strong the finished baskets are.

I made a small gift card to go along with the gift basket and gussied up the envelope with designer paper and a 5/8" piece of regal rose grosgrain ribbon.

Very nice yet somewhat very familiar.
